If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- What do Eminem, Hulk Hogan, and Twiggy All Have in Common?
A nice chart of some of the One Piece characters and the real life people their designs are based on.
- Federally Mandated Nerd Blog Link
For the thee people who missed the full Patton Oswalt Star Wars: Episode VII filibuster on Parks and Recreation.
- Not Nearly Enough Conversation About Sayla Mass
Patz and Ed try to discuss Gundam: The Origin properly but sadly they miss the most important part. But their flawed discussion focuses on bringing the manga to an English-speaking audience a second time.
- The Road Map to Adventure!
A nice collection of fantasy maps with everything from Oz to Azeroth on the list.
- Because I Like Cheesy Fantasy
Everyone loves Game of Thrones because it is fantasy done smart but sometimes you need campy sword and sorcery adventures. Here are some decent prospects.
- Darth Vader is Lost in Japan Still
These Tokyo Disneyland shorts are a hoot. I think I linked to the first one when it came out, now there are two more.
- 80 Hour Work Weeks Are Killing Developer Talent
A good article about the loop that occurs when one employee or company works crazy hours. That five year average statistic of how long people stay in the game industry was particularly sobering.
- A Week Where They Announce All The Games Ever
This week was kind of crazy as far as game announcements go for me. I don’t play a ton of games so there is usually only one or two a year that catch me. Just this week four were revealed! It started with the remake of Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse, then revved up with a new Yoshi’s Island game, really got good with Earthbound finally getting rerelease stateside, and topped off with a new Zelda game set in the world of A Link to the Past! And they even had a preview of the Zelda game which looks great!
What else could go here? I almost went with one of the more. . . interesting. . . For the Barrel pictures but I will save those for another day.
